With heightened concern around COVID-19, many schools and universities worldwide are building disaster mitigation plans and preparing for school-wide closures. In response to this, Adobe will be providing schools and universities that have Creative Cloud access in on-site computer labs with temporary at-home licences of Creative Cloud desktop apps for their students and faculty, and Adobe will bring forward or move back this date based on how the situation evolves. This will enable students to continue their learning remotely. This offer is subject to qualification: https://helpx.adobe.com/enterprise/kb/covid-19-education-labs.html

Adobe will enable Creative Cloud desktop app access to students in faculties which are part of an eligible educational institute. All Creative Cloud desktop apps that are available in an All Apps subscription will be available.

What’s next:

Monday, 16 March: Adobe will send IT admin e-mail to K12 and Higher Education customers (Take note: Adobe will not be e-mailing students or the faculty directly)
